SOLD Guild GAD 30R

Post by codedog »

I guess unsurprisingly, it's ex Oleg. Solid sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides. One piece mahogany neck with 1.75" nut width. Great for fingerpicking and strumming. Comes with LR Baggs iBeam pickup installed.

In fantastic condition, with a tiny ding on the top. It's in the close up photo, in the lower bout.

Here's one demo:



Also advertised on TM... but $730 for fellow forumites.

My photos don't do it justice, it's a gorgeous looking guitar. More photos here https://imgur.com/gallery/o18L7rb

It really is a very nice guitar, crazy value for money. Alas... I'm on a quest to try out different guitars...

Lovely to see that guitar again. It sounds as good as it looks, too. Good luck with the sale.

Guilds are massively underrated guitars. They make really nice stuff.

It's a bloody looker too! I love that tear drop burst, can't stand the other sort in the video. All the visual elements on this thing just work together... the inlays, the burst, the flame maple bindings and heel cap, the headstock veneer, even the case and its fittings is bloody sexy!

"Someone" on the forum is continuously downsizing and I want something of his! Someone please help me help him!
